Summary:

Vernon Carey Jr. is a strong, mobile big man that can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he also handles the ball well, especially for a player his size. He can put it on the deck to score, he can post up, and he can knock down jumpers. He’ll need to show that he can effectively guard upper echelon players on a consistent basis, but still, Carey is a very talented player that could end up being a lottery pick in 2020.
